I know what you mean. I looked into replacing ours, but holy-moly do they want a ton for them. Nope, will live with what we have.

Sounds like it is everything you want. Good luck and .

Yeah, they all have both day shades and night shades. Fairly classy looking for a guy who ain't the classy type..

We just got back from a little 2 night stay at a local state park. Testing everything. Only one issue. The floor heat register in our front bedroom blasts a ton of hot air. The bedroom is very close to the heater so it's the first place the air comes out. Then the bathroom which was blasting too. The next register in the bunkhouse was fine and the one after that in the kitchen was fine as well. The last register in the floor of the living room had very little air coming out. I just went to Lowes and bought some registers with dampers in them. Worked like a charm to be able to regulate the air flow. I have no idea why trailer builders don't just go ahead and put adjustable registers in trailers. The price for them is fairly minimal. But of course their bottom line would not be as high right? Anyway the testing went very well and we love the trailer. Very easy to pull too.

That's funny. My 390QSMB is nearly the same layout and my bunk room was like a blast furnace. I pulled the cover off and blocked off 2/3rds of the vent. The rest are fairly well balanced.

We also ran the fireplace and it did a decent job down to around 50. Below that the furnace would kick on once in a while.

Yeah I was pleased with the fireplace too. We looked very closely at the one you got. It was between the 395RL and that one. We went with ours just because of the bunk layout. I like that yours has more counter space in the kitchen but I also prefer our freestanding island. I'm weird in that I hate getting blocked in anywhere. With the island I have an out. hehe.

I ran the heat in the driveway and noticed that it was imbalanced too. Funny thing is the last two campers we had we never turned the heat on as we use portable heaters and the fireplace DW says that is because I am cheep but, I turned the heat on in the drive so she could go in and pack her kitchen!
